Holmes on Goff

Paul Holmes explains why Phil Goff is losing:

If you don’t like someone for a year or more, you aren’t going to change your mind and vote for that person because they might be technically the stronger debater.

You could make the case that Goff was the stronger debater last Monday night. But did you notice the most telling result of the texts to the programme at the end of the debate? According to the texters, Key had won it handsomely.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
